Psalms, Chapter 37

37:1 [A Psalm] of David. Don't fret yourself because of evildoers, Neither be envious against those who work unrighteousness.
37:2 For they will soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb.
37:3 Trust in Yahweh, and do good; Stay in the land, and pasture on faithfulness.
37:4 Delight yourself also in Yahweh; And he will give you the desires of your heart.
37:5 Commit your way to Yahweh; Trust also in him, and he will bring it to pass.
37:6 And he will make your righteousness to go forth as the light, And your justice as the noonday.
37:7 Rest in Yahweh, and wait patiently for him: Don't fret yourself because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked devices to pass.
37:8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: Don't fret yourself, [it tends] only to evildoing.
37:9 For evildoers will be cut off; But those who wait for Yahweh, they will inherit the land.
37:10 For yet a little while, and the wicked will not be: Yes, you will diligently consider his place, and he will not be.
37:11 But the meek will inherit the land, And will delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
37:12 The wicked plots against the just, And gnashes on him with his teeth.
37:13 The Lord will laugh at him; For he sees that his day is coming.
37:14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, To slay such as are upright in the way.
37:15 Their sword will enter into their own heart, And their bows will be broken.
37:16 Better is a little that the righteous has Than the abundance of many wicked.
37:17 For the arms of the wicked will be broken; But Yahweh upholds the righteous.
37:18 Yahweh knows the days of the perfect; And their inheritance will be forever.
37:19 They will not be put to shame in the time of evil; And in the days of famine they will be satisfied.
37:20 But the wicked will perish, And the enemies of Yahweh will be as the fat of lambs: They will consume; in smoke they will consume away.
37:21 The wicked borrows, and does not pay again; But the righteous deals graciously, and gives.
37:22 For such as are blessed of him will inherit the land; And those who are cursed of him will be cut off.
37:23 A [noble] man's goings are established of Yahweh; And he delights in his way.
37:24 Though he falls, he will not be completely cast down; For Yahweh upholds him with his hand.
37:25 I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his seed begging bread.
37:26 All the day long he deals graciously, and lends; And his seed is blessed.
37:27 Depart from evil, and do good; And stay forevermore.
37:28 For Yahweh loves justice, And does not forsake his saints; They are preserved forever: But the seed of the wicked will be cut off.
37:29 The righteous will inherit the land, And stay in it forever.
37:30 The mouth of the righteous talks of wisdom, And his tongue speaks justice.
37:31 The law of his God is in his heart; None of his steps will slide.
37:32 The wicked watches the righteous, And seeks to slay him.
37:33 Yahweh will not leave him in his hand, Nor condemn him when he is judged.
37:34 Wait for Yahweh, and keep his way, And he will exalt you to inherit the land: When the wicked are cut off, you will see it.
37:35 I have seen the wicked in great power, And spreading himself like a green tree in its native soil.
37:36 But one passed by, and, look, he was not: Yes, I sought him, but he could not be found.
37:37 Mark the perfect man, and look at the upright; For there is a [happy] end to the man of peace.
37:38 As for transgressors, they will be destroyed together; The end of the wicked will be cut off.
37:39 But the salvation of the righteous is of Yahweh; He is their stronghold in the time of trouble.
37:40 And Yahweh helps them, and rescues them; He rescues them from the wicked, and saves them, Because they have taken refuge in him.
